Who wouldn't want to celebrate October?

Our Oktoberfest is always a hit with the residents. Together, we can munch on grilled brats, sauerkraut, and apple strudel and pretend that we're German. Today for lunch, we can eat like some of our ancestors might have.

In honor of National Chili Week, I thought it would be fun to share with you a recipe that one of our residents brought to us years ago. Amos was a dear man who loved to cook, and one of the meals he was known for was chili soup. He taught our activity staff to make it...

I'd like to say that volunteering is a glamorous, recognition-inducing thing to do. I'd like to tell you that we reward our volunteers richly for their service.
